All-day staffing plan at LNWR’s bar­ri­ers

Rail (UK) - - Network -

Lon­don North­west­ern Rail­way is to staff au­to­matic bar­ri­ers from the first train of the day through to the last.

Staff will be in place all day along­side the au­to­mated ticket bar­ri­ers at Northamp­ton, Mil­ton Keynes Cen­tral, Bletch­ley, Hemel Hemp­stead, Wat­ford Junc­tion and Lon­don Eus­ton.

Jonny Wise­man, head of sta­tions at LNWR, said: “These changes will help us to pro­vide bet­ter cus­tomer ser­vice and im­proved se­cu­rity at some of our busiest sta­tions. We also want to sup­port our fare-pay­ing cus­tomers by re­duc­ing tick­et­less travel on our trains, what­ever time of day they are trav­el­ling.

“Pas­sen­gers can help re­duce un­nec­es­sary de­lays at sta­tions by en­sur­ing they al­ways have a valid ticket for their jour­ney. There are now a num­ber of ways to do this, and we don’t want any­one to get caught out.”
